Can I get a scholarship to pay for my college education?


First time college students don't always realize that a number of organizations offer scholarships for qualifying students. While many of these awards are need based, others may be available for someone who shows talent in a certain area or has an interest in a specific field of study. A few examples of some of the scholarships include:

1. athletics;

2. academics;

3. science degree seeking; and,

4. nationality.

To find information on scholarships, you can visit the financial aid office at your college or university. In addition, you may find information on various awards by doing a search on the Internet.
